The Conference will be the Third International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity building on the success of the previous events held in Bergen, Norway in June 2008 and Hamilton, Canada in June 2011.

The aim for this series was to organize a conference every 3rd year, to review and discuss recent achievements in environmental radioactivity and related disciplines. The conferences will promote continued development in these subjects to improve radiological protection of humans and the environment.

The International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity 2014 will cover the acquisition of basic scientific knowledge in research as well as identifying new societal needs and technical requirements for regulators and industry. This will include predicting the consequences of all sources of radioactivity; industrial, (enhanced) natural, accidental and potential. Design of appropriate emergency preparedness routines will be another focus area, as well as supporting the development of laws and regulations that protect man and ecosystems from the effects of radiation. The conference will be a key forum for researchers, industry, regulators and experts for whom radioactivity in the environment is an interest area.

The following themes will be covered
  • Environmental Protection, Surveillance and Risk Management
  • EmergencyPreparedness, Rehabilitation, and Management
  • NORM including Mines, Refineries, Conversion Facilities & non-nuclear Industries
  • RadionuclidesSpeciation&Ecological Transfer
  • RadioecologicalSensitivity
  • Environmental risks within a multistressor context and radiobiological effects resulting from chronic radiation exposure regimes.
  • RadioactiveWaste Management &Disposal
  • Nuclear Legacy
